While in India I visited the Sunday Local Market and found this lovely handbag made in rich jewelled fabrics and embellishments, had to have it.
The bag was made by the rural Indian women from the village of Gujarat. Shanti Hastkala an NGO working in these villages enable and empower these women to train and promote their talent making them financially independent.
These talented women also make garments, quilts and clutches. If you are looking for something similar visit their website at www.shantihastkala.org and Support a good cause.
